I'm a person who LOVES dogs, so I never really understand when people say they don't like Pitbulls. I guess I shouldn't say I don't understand. I do get it, some people get nervous around dogs, and Pitbulls sadly have a bad rep.

What I don't understand, is when people see a dog like this in action and still say "I don't like Pitbulls".

More often than not, if you give a Pitbull a chance, you will be more than pleasantly surprised. I think today's Pet of the Week Bernard proves just that...

Please give Bernard a chance and a home to call his own. Adopt him today at Winnebago County Animal Services, or call 815-319-4100 for information on animal adoption.
